A love of language and word forms combine with a strong sense of social justice drive the Pixeladies to make art out of headlines. Their dramatic imagery is formed from collages painstakingly cut and composed from the headlines featured in a wide array of publications. They then scan the collages into the computer and have the final version printed onto fabric. The resulting whole-cloth quilt is densely quilted by machine or by hand. Each political statement is laced with humor, making the experience of Pixeladies’ artwork unforgettable.
More About Kris and Deb
Deb and Kris teach online Photoshop classes and give presentations on their work. They met in college – German Club to be exact. Since they were both artsy and liked to travel, they got along well. They moved around after graduation, Deb managing fabric stores and Kris teaching college. While Kris was battling the slings and arrows in academia, Deb would tell her to “just come home, and we’ll start a business.” Well, Kris finally came home, and the Pixeladies were born in 2003.
Their studio consists of three computers, two printers, four sewing machines, and a serger. The cats are not allowed inside. Yes, they collaborate on their Pixeladies projects because they like the challenge of coming up with a single artistic vision from two distracted minds! The Pixeladies’ artwork has been published and juried into national and international exhibitions.
